To post or not to post...

I've been busy working on projects -really I have - I've just not been writing about them. Many nights it has come down to choosing between actually DOING a project, or just writing about it - and I've been choosing the doing, primarily because I have some gifting to be done and don't want to catch myself with too little time to get things done.

I've been trying to photograph things as I go along - and I promise I will share both the finished project and the process when I get the chance.

Tonight was VERY productive - in 2 hours I got a quilt binding stitched on, 5 strip sets assembled, 5 backing strips assembled, backing and border batting strips cut, binding cut, flange cut and pressed, borders cut - just need the right color thread for the quilting/assembly and I am good to go.

The pattern? Snapshots from Happy Hour by Atkinson Designs. The assembly method? Not what is in the book (more to follow on that later). The fabric? The photo above shows the 12 FQ and border/binding fabric I picked up on my recent visit to SC. There was a bit of a "battle of wills" between the shop clerk and I over my choice of the birds - but I am loving how they look in the quilt!!

I know what you mean about posting or sewing...there just aren't enough hours left in the day by the time kids go to bed! Can't wait to see your snapshots quilt!

Love the colors for the new quilt (I am a sucker for anything pink). I am anxious to see it finished as I really like "Happy Hour" - I should probably do more quilts from that pattern!

Love the fabrics you're using in the quilt.
I know what you mean about the computer. I would get so much more done if I stayed out of blogland and off Facebook

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Love the fabrics! I can't wait to see how your assembly for this quilt goes and turns out. :)

And did you change your sidebar recently? I like it!
